ABSTRACT
In 23 patients ranging from 45 to 62 years, serum cholesterol response to a dextrorotary isomer of thyroxine was noted after the drug had been administered for 1 to 5 months. Mean cholesterol values declined from an initial 284 mg per cent to 188 mg per cent. Side effects—heartburn and nervousness—were transitory and did not interfere with continued treatment.
